History of Changes
To determine the efficacy of oral 882C87 compared with oral acyclovir in the treatment of localized herpes zoster in immunocompromised patients. To assess the safety and tolerance of oral 882C87 in immunocompromised patients.
Drug : Netivudine
Drug : Acyclovir
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Double-Blind, Multicenter Study Comparing Oral 882C87 With Oral Acyclovir for Treatment of Localized Herpes Zoster in Immunocompromised Patients|
Further study details as provided by NIH AIDS Clinical Trials Information Service:
Patients are randomized to receive either 882C87 or acyclovir with corresponding placebos for 14 days, with two hundred patients in each of the two groups. They are stratified by presence or absence of HIV infection. Patients undergo 6 months of follow-up.Eligibility
|Ages Eligible for Study:||18 Years and older|
|Sexes Eligible for Study:||All|
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:||No|
Patients must have:
- Acute localized herpes zoster or rash present less than 72 hours, verified by clinical diagnosis.
- Immunocompromised condition primarily as a result of documented HIV infection, malignancy, chemotherapy or radiation therapy, solid organ or bone marrow transplant, or chronic immunosuppressive therapy.
- Life expectancy of at least 6 months.
- Ability to cooperate with the requirements of the study.
- Evidence of cutaneous or visceral dissemination (more than 20 discrete lesions outside adjacent dermatomes).
- Acute, life-threatening condition.
- Significant malabsorption syndrome or other gastrointestinal dysfunction that may severely reduce drug absorption.
- Intolerance of oral medication.
- Tricyclic antidepressants or anti-epileptics.
- Topical applications to the zoster lesions that would obscure evaluation.
- Fluorouracil and flucytosine.
- Systemic therapy with agents with antiherpetic activity (from 2 weeks prior to first dose to day 28 of study).
- Probenecid or other drugs likely to affect elimination of study drugs (from 2 days prior to first dose to day 14 of the study).
- Capsaicin (Zostrix).
- Warfarin (Coumadin) during 14 days of treatment.
- Systemic therapy with agents with antiherpetic activity (including interferon) within the past 2 weeks.
- Probenecid or other drugs likely to affect the elimination of 882C87 or acyclovir within the past 48 hours.
- Drugs likely to interact with 882C87 (e.g., fluorouracil or flucytosine) within the past 7 days.
- Zoster immune globulin or zoster immune plasma within the previous month. History of
Patients with the following symptoms or conditions are excluded:
Patients with the following prior conditions are excluded:
History of intolerance, hypersensitivity, or severe drug reaction to acyclovir.
